Grantham gone

Posted - May 14, 2011

Building sold

The Council has agreed to sell Grantham House, for a sum assumed to be well above £3 million, to a private developer who will refurbish the interior to bring it up to current standards. While this will not create any social housing on the site it will generate funds that can be used to support social housing elsewhere in Jericho, possibly on the canalside site.

How religious we are?

In the 2001 Census, some 50% of Jericho residents said they were Christian, 2.2% Muslim, 1.9% Buddhist and 1.2% professed other religions, while 34% of people said they had no religion. In Oxford as a whole the proportion with no religion was 24%.

The origins of Walton?

Walton is derived from “wall town” which was used centuries ago to indicate a location outside the Oxford city walls. The ancient manor of Walton was certainly in existence before the Norman conquest in 1066.
